Beauty | Summertime Faves

I wanted to share a few of my favorite summertime beauty items! :)

It has been super hot and HUMID lately here in Maryland. So, I've been skipping foundation and came to LOVE MAC's BB (Beauty Balm) Cream. My shade is Dark Deep. I apply it with a stipple brush and it blends right into my skin. You can also use your hands (clean, of course) or a sponge.
What is a BB Cream? Many beauty lines carry them now. Basically, think of it like tinted moisturizer on steroids. The MAC one has SPF 35, which I love. It brightens my complexion and evens it out but gives light to medium coverage. It feels very light on my skin and I haven't had to use concealer in addition to it. Go to your local MAC store/counter and try it out! Also available online :)

A great eyeliner to try - especially if you have oily eyelids even with primer - is by Stila (Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner). It doesn't fade, smear, rub off - it's perfect. To remove, just use an eye makeup remover before washing your face for the night. It will come off easily.

Finally, I went to get a mani yesterday. I brought my own polish this time (this color is by Julie G from Rite Aid and it's called "9 to 5", a peachy/sorbet-type color). I got the half-moon look and had the nail tech apply clear gel to my nails when done to help the mani last longer. I'm loving the look and the color! :) Fun!!

I love MAC's BB Cream and MAC's Mineralized Skin Finish -- I use both in Deep Dark! Also for the summer, I'm loving Aloe Vera Juice. I mix it with my lotions and/or Coconut Oil and apply it before leaving home. It helps keep my skin cool, moisturized, and burn free throughout the day (since it's usually what's applied after getting sunburns).
